Abstract

Recent days, organizations use human resource management (HRM) practices to accelerate the environmental performance of organizations. Hence, there are lacunas in empirical studies undertaken in Sri Lankan context regarding the relationship between HR factors and environmental performance of organizations. This study was conducted in order to fulfil this empirical knowledge gap. Hence, the objective of this study is to examine the relationship between HR factors and environmental performance of organizations. In order to achieve the study objective, primary data were collected from 165 employees of selected manufacturing organizations in Seethawaka Export Processing Zone in Sri Lanka and the structured questionnaire was administered to collect the data. The data were analyzed by using univariate and bivariate analyses. The findings of the study revealed that HR factors have a positive and significant relationship with environmental performance of organizations in overall. The findings of this study are useful in further enlarging and enriching applications of these concepts in practice.
